Thanks to Kevin, I managed to put an auto-save feature for all of MC.
Fortunately my stacks remain small but with all the changes I do, and the
stability I got is not 100%, I need to have these saved often.
So I stuck a few saving routines where needed including some exception
handling because MC saves even what's not changed... Or it seems to... Even
the contextual menu is a stack... this was quite annoying...
Anyone know of a function or variable that tells you if the stack was edited
Lastly, I decided to put all the handlers into the stack of MCtools (the
menu bar) and only save on closesomething - delays are not too long but I
had to exclude any stack owned by MCTools.
Home doesn't seem as top of the hierarchy as in HC. I've seen msgs go
through without being intercepted - needs more testing. Am I wrong? Is
MCTools the very top of the hierarchy? can someone confirm or deny this?

# Hypercard is built with the idea of saving all the time
# so it saves rapidly just a little chunk at a time
# and we barely notice it.
# MetaCard is built with the idea of saving at the end of the session.
# And it saves the whole thing each time, so it can take a lot of time.
# As you project becomes bigger,
# saving at every event becomes impractical.
# I got into the habit of saving before doing any action
# where I got a crash in the past and lost hours of work.
# This way, if I crash again,
# at least I don't loose any work...
